in new york city, the golden strip, michael eric dyson, host of nbc, melissa harris perry from the nation, and ari melbourne, columnist for the washington post and msnbc contributor jonathan capehart. this is, unfortunately, something that is tha has happened a number of times this year. an ongoing national nightmare, these shootings that take place. i guess my first question is an unfolding situation. certainly we are getting more details there. there may be more bodies in the school. we don't know yet. melissa, i go to you first as a mother when you hear about this, and, you know, the ages of these children here. we're talking about an elementary school. it is a moment, obviously, for self-reflection, but also a sense that when is enough going to be enough in terms of violence in this country? >> we have to be careful because this is an unfolding event. we don't know what all the stories are, but essential as a parent -- but not just as a parent. for every one of us who sends, you know, our mom off for the day or our spouse off or our kids, you know, this idea that we live in such a con
are in new york city. >> $6 a gallon. >> jay, we talk about lieverage right? not that i have anything against kabuki theater, here is the argument. republicans go to the mat defending tax cuts for top earners. i'm surprised the white house hasn't brought in the argument for extending payroll tax cuts and unemployment insurance, because that's the poor and the working class and the middle class. there's the argument. republicans won't support those tax cuts. >> food stamps so badly cut in the house version of the bill. three times. >> did 35 billion over 10 years. but really i mean this is like the ideological parity test. is it because they have too much on the plate to discuss? >> they've got plenty on the plate to discuss and first priority is to break republican resistance to higher rates and they're on their way toward doing that. i think in fairness it's not ideology on the republican side. remember the democratic bill, which passed the senate which 64 votes on the farm bill, did cut food stamps and they had an argument for the -- these were cuts not to sort of primary recipients but thi
in this country. we've done it in new york. this is the safest big city in the country. there are other large cities that are making real inroads against gun violence, but at the local level mayors and governors can't do it without leadership at the federal level, and, again, the passion and the comforting words from the president, they're important, but they're not nearly as important as the kind of leadership that he and congressman larson, his colleagues in congress, need to demonstrate now to get something done. >> congressman, before we go, i have to ask you, what factor do you think contributes the most to moving the ball forward on this? is it greater coverage in the media? is it more leadership from our politicians? what do you need to see to push for gun control reform in congress? >> well, clearly, clearly, it's all of the above, but most importantly, it's leadership from our elected officials. we are elected with a responsibility and a charge, and we have an obligation to speak out. if this were a terrorist attack and, frankly, i think these are domestic acts of terrorism. we would
pennsylvania governor ed rendell, deputy new york city mayor howard wolfson and editor of the "new york times" magazine edward lindgren. jansing and company's chris jansing joins us now. you have been on the road a lot this year to some very terrible places in the wake of some very serious american tragedies, but this one, if i dare say it, seems a little bit different. give us your sense of your take on the move -- as far as the mood on the ground and how the community is reacting m days since the tragedy. >> alex, it would be difficult to even begin to try to express the depth and the breadth of the pain that this community is feeling and will feel all weeklong. the first of a series of funerals is getting underway right now. i'll show you a page from the local paper, and there are two pages of obituaries of children. we've just learned that governor dan malloy has shown up at the funeral of little noah, 6 years old, noah posner, who has a twin and an 8-year-old sister, and there was a heartbreaking question asked in his obituary. how do you capture the essence of a 6-year-old in just a few
